Timely, Accurate Advice
I endorse this lawyer. She provided a fast and clear response to an urgent copyright matter at my company. I appreciate outside counsel that can provide timely, useful advice, without all of the "legal jargon" and caveats. I need advice that I can pass on to my internal stakeholders without having to translate it for non-lawyers to understand. This lawyer is intelligent, friendly and I feel confident her advice is accurate.
